Right click on the stock in the list or on the chart and select Option Chain.

When I click on the option I get a graph of the option is it also possible to plot the open interest as well

Right-click on the chart and select Edit Chart Properties | Option Sym. Choose to Plot the Option. Then add the Open Interest indicator to the chart.

Is it possible to open up a page that will only show the option prices for a specific strike price.

For example I like to see where the 85 strikes are trading at for the next few months of expiration all on one page

I am talking about something like this 

Jan 85 W1
Jan 85 W2
Jan 85 W3
Jan 85 W4
Feb 85 W1
Feb 85 W2
Feb 85 W3
Feb 85 W4

You could select Show All Expirations and expand the window so you can see multiple weeks, but I there's not a way to view the 85 strike price only.

You need to have the option plotted as the main symbol on the chart.

Right-click on the chart and select Edit Chart Properties | Option Sym. Then choose Plot the Option.

I have my chart set to plot stock and option so when I click on specific strike right under my stock price pane it plots the graph of that option 

Is there anyway I can make the scale Logarethmic?

I can put in a suggestion that it be changed (and will do so), but as it stands, the option needs to plotted as the main symbol on the chart. This is not the case when the char is set to plot underlying stock & option.

There is no way to make the scale for Implied Volatility logarithmic instead of arithmetic.

In TC can I make an indicator that plots the ratio of the option Price vs, the stock price 

I like to plot this in % bc I like to quickly see the how big the premium is vs the stock

Assume stock is at 50 and the premium is 5 therefore the indicator will plot 10%

I do not know of a way to create this an indicator. There difinitely isn't a way to create this using a formula.

Thank you for your suggestion.
